The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 658: Worms
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 331 – Worms at tw100.

Summary: Tosh tells Ianto something shocking.

“Ianto,” said Tosh one day as they chatted over coffee, “did you know Jack’s got worms?”

Ianto almost choked, staring at her in shock.


“Yes, I found out yesterday, completely by accident. Maybe I shouldn’t have said anything; I just thought you probably knew. He said he usually doesn’t tell people because of how they react. No idea why it would bother anyone; I think they’re fascinating.”

“You find Jack’s worms fascinating?”

Tosh nodded. “He keeps them in this glass tank thingy.”

“It’s called a wormery, Tosh,” Jack said, joining them.

Ianto breathed a sigh of relief. “Oh, earthworms.”
